DT Nikita Whitlock, Jr., Wake Forest (Two stars in Class of 2009): Whitlock is listed at 5-11, which means he's probably even shorter. Schools shied away from Whitlock because of his height, which is to be expected. While a too-tall nose guard presents his own set of issues, a 5-11 one probably can't carry enough weight to be effective. Wake Forest was Whitlock's only FBS offer, and that came at the 11th hour. "The reason I came to Wake was because it was either Wake or Iraq," Whitlock told the Winston-Salem Journal. He's serious. Whitlock told the paper that he had already spoken to an Army recruiter. If Wake coaches hadn't offered, Whitlock would have enlisted. Instead, Whitlock stunned coaches and opponents by dominating at 260 pounds. In 2011, he led the Demon Deacons in tackles for loss with 14.
